      (Rake: $0.34)

      Should I 3bet on turn?
      How could I get the best value, I was afraid that he will fold when I raise to much.

      I like raising turn because if you call, your remaining stack is still too big and it's gonna be kind of hard to get the money in on the river.

      He's shown quite some strength (minraise on the turn is usually pretty strong) and he's never ever folding a T. A Q is not folding either, once he minraises, although a Q is super unlikely since there's only 1 Q left in the deck.

      So just make it something like $2 and call a shove or push river yourself if he just calls.
